The text below was one of my entries in the Journal app installed on my mobile.. I decided to post this because I’d like to share the feeling I felt when I did this…
so here it goes…
“okay, so i had this student of mine who was asking for help about their thesis..they were looking for a programmer who specializes in java..
i have known a few, my classmates to be specific, but they were all professionals already and i don’t think they can do the job for these students because they are also busy in their work..
so i just told the students that i can’t help them..
i felt sorry for them because they are at the peak of their thesis, they were the only group who’s having dilemma on their project and pressured with not having a final defense yet..
since i felt sorry and wanted to help even a little, i had sent them message instead to make them feel my support and uplift their spirits despite the pressure they are undergoing at the moment..
“okok.. good luck po and always tatagan ang boot, sometimes we may feel helpless pero it’s just a test kung papano kita ma disposition and papano ta dadarahon ang sarong problem. if we stop looking for solutions and just give up, mayo kita kayan matatapos or dae ta man lng masosolve ang problem. pero if you would go and keep finding solutions to solve it, you will never feel you failed even if it failed in the end coz you did your best.. if in case ma-encounter mo sya ulit, you will never feel afraid anymore because you already learned how to attack such problem and from this moment, you are now wiser and strong and able to take on the challenge kasi naagihan mo na sya and aram mo na kung anong gigibuhon.. kaya go lang, laban pra sa kinabukasan.. good luck! :)”
i don’t know if they will appreciate it but i do hope it helps even just a bit..
hay, teacher’s life.. hehe!
this is one of the best things that a person could feel. to help out someone not in terms of material things but through intangible things..
this is also a documentation so that if in case i happen to feel the down somewhere in time, something would remind me of the things i did when i was inspired.. i just hope i won’t feel depressed again and would stay positive as always.. i hate it whenever i lose hope and lose myself..
(emotional moment here) hehe!
this is for my students and for me as well..”
That’s it. 🙂
